Do FPV UK members need a Flyer ID?
Section 3.12 of the Article 16 Operational Authorisation says:
Remote Pilot Competence
(1) Any remote pilot operating in accordance with this authorisation must demonstrate a suitable level of pilot competence, by either (a) or (b) below:
a) Passing one of the following online tests:
i. CAA online DMARES test;
iv. FPV UK certificate of competency: Drone Law (‘A’ Certificate) online test;
Therefore FPV UK members who have achieved the FPV UK Certificate of Competency: Drone Law (‘A’ certificate) do not require a Flyer ID to fly under the terms of the Article 16 Operational Authorisation.
The FPV UK Certificate of Competency: Drone Law is a ten multiple-choice question quiz which you can take in your member area on FPVUK.org now. It takes only a couple of minutes and your FPV UK membership certificate will instantly show that you hold the FPV UK Certificate of Competency: Drone Law (‘A’ Certificate). It will also show on any future membership card.
If a member already has a Flyer ID (perhaps they also fly outside of the Article 16 Operational Authorisation – eg for commercial operations) they can store this number in the ‘Flyer ID’ box within their FPV UK account. And they can fly under the Article 16 Operational Authorisation without the need for an FPV UK Certificate of Competency: Drone Law.
